TEEN CHEF CLASSES - FOOD FUNDAMENTALS

 

Good cooks know that one of the best ways to get young people interested in the culinary arts is to include them in kitchen activities. C’est Bon Cooking’s Teen Chef classes go much further by engaging youth aged 12 and older in an intensive, week-long exploration of kitchen fundamentals. Over five fun and food filled days, participants work closely with Chef Georges to learn a variety of essential cooking techniques. Soups, egg dishes, fish & shellfish, poultry & meat, and vegetables will be covered. It’s a great way to make lasting memories, dramatically improve a young person’s competence in the kitchen, and give teenagers the cooking skills and confidence they’ll need for life.

 

Mon - Fri, 10am to 2pm, lunch included

Thanks again to you and chef Andrée for the wonderful experience and meal yesterday.  The four of us had a great time.  Both you and Andrée were great with the kids.  Their experience was pretty much all they talked about up until bedtime. 
Please share our gratitude to chef Andrée as well.
Once again, thanks to both of you for making our experience at C'est bon cooking school a wonderful one.

"We had a fabulous time!  Everything was exceptionally well organized, instructions were clear and helpful, food was delicious (even if we made some of it!) and it was all a great deal of fun.  We really appreciate all of the effort that all three of you put into our class.
 
Merci beaucoup - I am certain we will recommend this to friends, and you may also see some of us again.
 
Merci!"
